“When I was first assigned (I now say I was lucky enough) to my coach, Faith Csikesz, I did not even realize I needed a coach! Faith has been a source of encouragement and support. While Faith began with the traditional coaching tools such as a 360 feedback, client interviews, and manager interviews, it blossomed into much more. While perhaps I may have seemed outwardly very confident, confidence was the root of some developmental barriers. Faith quickly utilized the tools and her insights to help me grow personally and professionally.
She helped keep me accountable to myself, and in the process taught me many new skills that make me more efficient, more confident, and even happier at work and at home. She helped me breakdown the reasons for some of my behaviors and gave me the courage to break some of those old thinking and even behavior patterns. She provided a very safe environment for me to be open with her and seek her guidance and input, while still allowing me to completely own the situation.
I have seen growth and development in myself I did not even think possible. I would highly recommend Faith as a partner for any organization that understands the role development of their people plays in not only short, but long-term success of the company and their bottom line”.
“After my first conversations with Faith, I started to feel like I was going to get the direction I needed to regain trust with my team, and rebuild my own confidence. Through a 360 assessment process, personal interviews with those I interact, and purposeful conversations between Faith and I, she gained the insight needed to help me see myself through the eyes of others. Faith is simply an amazing partner that has made me feel completely safe in discussing the barriers I faced. The work I’ve done with Faith has been difficult, yet is leading to the most rewarding professional growth of my career. Thank you Faith Csikesz, a.k.a. Sensei!”
“I had read many of Faith’s other testimonials before writing my own. My experience has been similar: quick changes; big changes; changes I didn’t know I needed; changes I didn’t think was possible. Great results, but what was equally impressive to me was how Faith did it. Coaching certainly takes an investment, but all my time with Faith was focused and incredibly effective. Emails and texts arrived with uncanny timing; phone and in-person meetings gave discoveries and material for weeks of work; even what seemed like casual conversations somehow led to major realizations about behavior patterns, limited thinking etc.
It is said that any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. Faith’s coaching is magic.”
